A Loving Start

The infant classrooms at New Horizon Academy are places where babies can grow and learn every day by exploring and making new discoveries.

Our Teachers

Infant Teacher PhotoOur commitment to early learning and education begins in our infant learning program with the partnership between our teachers and parents.

  • Together, you and your child’s teachers develop a daily schedule that meets the individual needs of your baby.
  • This important, trusting relationship continues as your baby grows and continues to develop. Very young children thrive in an environment, like ours, that is especially responsive to individual needs.
  • Our loving teachers will nurture your baby with kind words, warm smiles, and gentle touches to assure optimum opportunities for development.

  • This “play time” is an integral part of every day to help each baby learn and grow.
  • Our beautiful classrooms are designed to meet the unique and individual needs of each baby as they continue to reach each developmental milestone.

“We always knew what was going on with our newborn son. We received constant updates and photos via Daily Connect. Most importantly, they cared for our son like we would, and we could tell he was happy there by the way he interacted with the staff.”
